On Saturday I went to Battersea!
Why? you ask!
No not to see the famous Dog's Home...
Nor the equally famous power station ....
I went to meet up with Karen Lewis of Blueberry Park who had come to London all the way from Leeds for the We Make London Craft Fair.
Here we are together...
Here she is with her delightful stall...
Karen was as lovely as she seems on her blog and her stall looked beautiful all set out with her lovely screen printed items - pouches, wash bags, mirrors, notebooks, pencil rolls and tea towels....did I miss anything??
We chatted - and of course I bought a few little items as stocking fillers...notebooks and a pocket mirror
Would have bought more and will when she screen prints more of her lovely fabrics! Can't wait!
I already have some and as soon as I finish up a few Christmas pressie makes I shall get on with thinking of something to showcase her fabrics!
We discovered a mutual love of the Lottie Jansdotter Echo fabric and Karen told me she had previously designed a screen print very similar to the seed head print in the Echo line - must ask her to send me a photo!
Then of course I had to look around the rest of the stalls - it would have been
rude not to!
Here are some of the things I bought!
From this stall Claire Scully at thequietrevolution.co.uk
I bought this card for my wolf loving daughter....
And this print for my tiger loving niece - all the shading is done with patterns, so clever and so detailed
A partridge and a pear for the tree...from www.annawiscombe.com
Some fun sticky tape...from www.zeenashah.com
And some cute little button pins for my youngest ..from www.marykilvert-shop.com
On the way back to Clapham Station I took a few photos of the surroundings
Loved those windows
For several years I commuted to London from Surbiton in the south to the centre of London and always went through Clapham Junction Station! It was interesting to actually get off the platform and see what I had been missing...
Thanks to Karen, the We Make London team and a sunny day - I enjoyed my day out!
